English Reformations takes a refreshing new approach to the study of the Reformation in England. Christopher Haigh's lively and readable study disproves any facile assumption that the triumph of Protestantism was inevitable, and goes beyond the surface of official political policy to explore the religious views and practices of ordinary English people. With the benefit of hindsight, other historians have traced the course of the Reformation as a series of events inescapably culminating in the creation of the English Protestant establishment. Haigh sets out to recreate the sixteenth century as a time of excitement and insecurity, with each new policy or ruler causing the reversal of earlier religious changes. This is a scholarly and stimulating book, which challenges traditional ideas about the Reformation and offers a powerful and convincing alternative analysis.

Review:

`concise self-disclosure illuminates this scholar's whole work ... This book concludes with some 50 pages of notes and bibliography. No entry in the long list of books is more fair-minded and therefore authoritative.'David Edwards, The Tablet, 29 January 1994

'Christopher Haigh has produced a major challenge to any assumptions that religious change was easy or popular in his English Reformation: Religion, Politics and Society under the Tudors.' Felicity Heal, Church Times

'his textbook is a subtle, beautifully-crafted survey, with due attention to the detail of the Edwardian and Elizabethan Settlements'Diarmaid MacCullough, History Today, July 1994

'Students and scholars alike will ... welcome this first full exposition of his thesis, presented in an accessible and well-produced textbook. No-one reading this book could doubt that Dr Haigh still adheres in all essentials to the views that he has himself pioneered. Dr Haigh is a powerful advocate and it is unlikely that the revisionist case will ever again need, or receive, so forceful an exposition. Haigh's book is ... an important milestone.'Andrew Pettegree, Tildschrift voor Fieschidenis, 1994

'This is a contantly stimulating, lucidly written book, which draws on a wealth of illustrative material ranging from Catholic and Protestant catechisms to church-warden's accounts. Based on a wide knowledge of both the primary sources and specialist secondary works it will be read with profit by students and their teachers alike, and, in contrast with some recent books on the period, it is very much not a study of religion in Tudor England with Protestantism left out.'Claire Cross University of York EHR Feb '94

His style is very readable, forceful, and compelling...This is not a facile account of a complicated Reformation. Haigh knows what the complications are and does not hesitate to discuss them. (The Thomist)
